Okey Dokey.

Market Garden, so is this M43s all around then - well for US troops anyway?

M43's are fine if you have them. Also equally acceptable are M42's for the para's and M41/mustards for the GIR.

Apart from Boryszyn, this year is all about getting maximum use out of gear that many already have, rather than expecting them to spend more money on kit. So, most U.S players already have something suitable. Many already even have 82nd patches left over from St.Lo!

Open to all. In fact, we've only ever done one "members only" event.

It's one of the few "para vs para" battles, so might be time to dust off the FJ kit Del. Although there's scope for Waffen SS and Heer as well.

Deffers interested in this one as it is only 30mins down the road from me, at the moment that is though!!

Fallschirmjäger for me. That'll be the second time in a month (Op Sealion), after a long FJ absence.

So is it anything goes for the Germans or is it TBC?

Same here. Would be nice to get a sizeable FJ contingent together. The mixed kit used by that stage of the war should make it possible if people are willing.

Sounds good to me.

May be just standard old infantry kit for me instead of M43s and buckle boots unless I find what I need cheaply. Ruskie and WWI Tommy impressions will probably clean me out of cash...

Whatever the case I'll be there as GIR. :good:
